In July, I joined the Philadelphia Compost Co-op, which happens to have its main drop-off just a few blocks from my home.
Since then, each week, I drop off a little coffee container of non-meat, organic material and food waste. I paid $20 for the privilege and try to make it out to quarterly group volunteer days, and I get some soil come spring in exchange. It also just feels good to do something better with my food waste.
I made it out to my first compost volunteer day, which was in the beautiful Palmer Cemetery this Saturday.
After composting, SACM and I took hoagies to meet friends and watch a heartbreaking but entertaining Temple football loss to UCF.
